George B. Hartzog, Jr. Awards & Lecture Series

George B. Hartzog
George B. Hartzog, Jr.

The Hartzog Fund was conceived in 1978 when William C. Everhart and his wife, Mary, sought to honor the man who had meant so much to them and to the park movement in the United States. Everhart, after serving as Alumni Visiting Professor at Clemson in 1978, chose to honor Hartzog by presenting a financial gift to the Department of Parks, Recreation and Tourism Management in Hartzog's name. The Everharts' gift, along with donations from foundations, associates and friends, sponsors two annual activities and one graduate student scholarship. 

The George B. Hartzog, Jr. Lecture Series in Park and Conservation Area Management was developed to feature leading figures in the field of conservation. In addition to the Hartzog Lecture Series, the fund also supports the annual Hartzog Awards program, where up to six awards are presented to recognize exemplary leadership in addressing environmental issues and concerns.

The Hartzog Fellowship was implemented in 2003 and supports a graduate student doing research in parks associated with the National Park Service.
